Finding Good Mentors

Mentorship it’s easy to find a business you like locally or a brand that you think aligns with your brand, reach out to them and try to talk to them. I’ve been fortunate to have great mentors and in a way your mentor (if older) may try to live their second life through you and that’s never a bad thing.

Make Sure What You’re Doing, Doesn’t Exist

The amount of people that have paid for a proof of concept and didn’t see that this idea didn’t exist, and then they go to market and find a ton of competitors. Do your market research ahead of time first.

Talk About Your Problems and Get Feedback

Everything from our pricing structure to our process was given to us by either our friends or mentors from simply asking. The more people you can have look over your work, the better.
